are standing by for a conversation on what happened and why to cuss what it means to take meaningful action, that's president obama's phrase and a shattering moment of mindlessness. >>> the latest on the investigation, brian ross our chief investigative correspondent and, brian, investigators are beginning to piece together what happened in that terrifying ten minutes in the school. >> that's right, george, they say they are making good progress in knowing much of the how, although less of the why of the stunning crime. in particular, they are focusing on the weapons used, there were three weapons recovered, two handguns and a semiautomatic assault-style rifle that authorities believe was owned actually by adam lanza's mother, nancy. her friends say she was a gun enthusiast who bought the weapons for self-defense when she was divorced and lived in a large home by herself and often took her sons, her friends say, to a nearby firing range for target practice. >> so they confirm that the weapons belonged to her, but there had also been some reports, at least one in the "l.a. times" that the sh

, not later. we have to take action and the liver just like we did after 9/11, the things that are necessary for us to get things done today. i mean we have to start moving, planning, and constructing. one final project that is critical to and -- to new york state and minnesota and that is we have to preserve the next two titles are going in for the future and they will be built and designed so there was no water to go in there. we cannot shut down the two tunnels under what transit people call the north river and what i call the hudson. that is the only way in from new jersey. we need to more so that we can rebuild the existing tubes so we don't have this difficulty in the future. i need your help for that and i appreciate the time you have given me. >> a pretty big operation. we are happy to have you here and ask of you that you give us your view on the recovery efforts on what the damage looks like. >> thank you, mr. chairman. thank you for inviting me to testify before that committee on this critically important issue. and the chairman and ceo of the metropolitan transit safety associati
and rejecting real action against gun violence. at a defining a historic moment for our nation demanding courageous leadership, the nra has declined to step forward as a credible and constructive partner. the proposal for more armed guards in schools may be helpful in some instances, but it falls short of the strong, serious comprehensive action needed to stop the kind of horrific tragedy that occurred last week. many police that spoke to me on that day when we take a said that the killer was so heavily armed that they doubted they could have stopped him. the american people are demanding real change. the nra proposal fails to offer any real protection from violence. members in connecticut and around the country are writing and calling me to say that the nra does not speak for them. it was a call for action. the nra has failed to answer the call. we need to do something about these guns, about the assault weapons, the kind that was used in the new town tragedy. i am very proud to join and senator feinstein oppose the bill that will help put a stop to the proliferation of the assault weap
recommends at this time no disciplinary action. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live on capitol hill with more on this. catherine, in the last hour we have some brand new reaction to this report. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: that's right, jenna. first of all the report concludes there was no protest prior to the attack. that al qaeda is not dead. it has metastasized. that its followers have a new home in eastern libya. and that the benghazi on 9/11 was a significant defeat for the united states. it killed 4:00 americans including our ambassador. it also shuttered our diplomatic security presence in eastern lib. >> as well as a sizable cia operation. within the last hour a senior democrat at the closed classified briefing said there were systemic failures at seniors levels of the state department. >> i think the conclusion was very stark, very candid, very honest and told us the following. the mistakes were made, lives were lost and lessons need to be learned. first america can not retreat from a dangerous world. it is important for us to be there, to
. john harwood has the details. what's going on? >> not a whole lot of actions going on. although there have been some developments. let me bring our viewers up to date on those. first of all, treasury secretary geithner this afternoon announced the united states would hit the statutory debt limit on monday. that's new year's eve. that's part of an effort to pressure congress to act to raise the debt limit which may or may not be direct limb reply indicated in the fiscal cliff talks but it is relevant to the larger issue of debt and deficits. the treasury can move money around in certain ways to extend the point where we actually reach a crisis for probably a couple of months. but this is an early warning sign. secondly, republicans in the house sent word to democrats in the senate, white house, it is your turn now. we acted to put off the fiscal cliff several months ago with a bill that without objection tend all of those bush tax rates into the future and would turn off the sequester by switching defense cuts over to domestic programs. democrats, of course have no intention of d
, there's no action on capitol hill. will that change by the end of the year? tonight, two congressmen come "outfront" to talk specifics. plus, arizona's attorney general backs a plan reminiscent of the nra to arm school principles. does more guns in schools begin to add up? and the biggest political fumbles. the best of the worst from our politicians. >>> i'm in for erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, christmas is over. washington get back to work. the countdown is on. the clock is ticking. you've got six days to prevent this country from going over the fiscal cliff and today at least, we didn't see any action. nothing. nothing, nada. now, i'm not trying to be a grinch here. i hope everyone's had a merry, merry christmas. just like the president prescribed. >> drink some eggnog, have some christmas cookies, sing some christmas carols. >> but today's the 26th. you've drunk, you eaten and you've sung. now is the time for action. the latest news out of washington tonight, treasury secretary tim geithner told congress that the country will hit the debt ceiling on december 31st, new year's e
children. and we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics. >> as much as we think of this issue as a political untouchable, not the tragedy itself, but policy to prevent yet another tragedy like this. as much as we think of this as a subject that cannot be discussed in washington, president obama has spoken to this issue before today. he has been called to speak to it mostly in response to tragedies like today. but when you look at his remarks combined over time in full, it's just a remarkable chronicle of not just what he has said. what he said must be done. but it is a remarkable chronicle of what has not yet been done. >> it is part of our nature to demand explanations, to try to impose some order on the chaos, to make sense out of that which seems senseless. already we've seen the national conversation commence, not only about the motivations behind these killings, but about everything from the merits of gun safety laws to the adequacy of our mental health system. and much -- much of this process of
of the housing market. while they have already taken action to pretext the financial mortgage fund for single family loans from seeking federal funds, the f.y. 2012 report suggests that much more needs to be done to prevent such a draw. i want to hear more today about the administration's actions and proposals to minimize the risk to taxpayers stemming from their business and what safeguards are in place to ensure the quality and sustainability of the program. if the administration's actions and proposals will not be sufficient to restore f.h.a.'s fiscal health, i'm inclined to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle on the banking committee to find a bipartisan way to make shoo -- that happen. before i turn to ranking member shelby, i want to recognize his work as ranking member on this committee over the past six years. this may be our last hearing together this year, and we will have no ranking member next year. i'm part of our bipartisan record over the last two years we continued it the tradition of bipartisanship that this committee has been known for by passing signature bil

action for all kinds of securities. look at a previous swing in the stock or index and apply the ratios, and the result is usually an important level for that security. brodin likes to look for clusters of fibonacci relationships, and we have a group of three, 1436 to 1446, which is why this is so important. a retracement of a previous swing, 100% price projection of another swing, and if it would be symmetrical to a previous move. to brodin's way of thinking, these three levels clustered together create a strong ceiling of resistance, and the s & p has to wait to jump the hurdle. now, we failed to jump the hurdle yesterday. yesterday was significant, and negative. so brodin expected to see the kind of pullback we got today before we tried to test the resistance level again. fortunately, s & p has a floor of support created by another cluster of relationships, and this floor is at 1414. okay. just a couple points below where the s & p went out today. as long as we stay above, the path of least resistance is higher, and today, even if the ugliness, the floor held. what does that tell you
own. we have to come together, and we're going to have to take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this from happening regardless of politics. >> in that aurora theater last july a gunman wielding a semi-automatic rifle with a 100-barrel magazine, a shotgun and pistol went on a rampage killing 12 and wounding 58. shortly afterwards colorado's governor said stricter gun laws would not have helped. >> if there were no assault weapons available, if there were no this or that, this guy is going to find something and know how to create a bomb. >> he seemed different in an interview last wednesday, two full days before the events here in connecticut. when you look at what happened in aurora, the governor said, a great deal of that damage was from the large magazine on the ar-15 rifle. i think we need to have that discussion and say, where is this appropriate? joining any now is the governor of colorado, john hickenlooper. thank you for joining us today. i think that things are so fresh here in connecticut, but you have been dealing for several months with the aftermath of
, conservative groups have already condemned his harder bargain. heritage action called it the grand capitulation. republicans rm urged not to concede on the debt ceiling. mean whooit on the left, the huffington post, there's a headline condemning obama's raw deal saying the president's offer targets the middle class and the elderly. it's the cpi index they're taking issue with. the way you used to be able to get a deal done in washington is quote/unquote if both sides complained. that means there was equal pain. the question is if that still applies today. we'll see. there has to be some movement here. is the threshold going to get moved up? how will the rank and file respond to speaker bain they are morning? he's not presenting them any plan, but when the update is done. and what happens? where are senate republicans? some of them are in a sour place. when do they decide to launch their quote/unquote plan bs, which would extend tax rates up to 250,000 and punt everything else? we'll see. the next 24 hours are everything. they have to get a deal, a framework in place to avoid any sort of punt. >
security establishments, our business communities all know this is rear. there is a rear-guard action in this building led by polluters to keep us from taking action on this. we have to face the fact that the deniers are wrong. just plain dead wrong. >> jennifer: that is the incredible senator sheldon white whitehouse unloading on his colleagues at a senate hearing. exactly who is he talking to? take senator gyms inhofe. he's with the senate committee of environment and public works. that senator, senator inhofe has referred to global chime change change as an alarmist. why would he say that? maybe because the top three contributers to his political campaign for the top five years are some of the top fossil fuel industries in the campaign. koch industries, murray energy. devon energy. is there any chance that reason can speak louder than money? here to help us answer that question is jefferey sachs. he's comeing to us via skype from new york. thank you for joining us in "the war room"." >> thanks for having me again. it's great to be with you. 12,347 >> jennifer: i appreciate your p

as a country and help them take action. and all they're asking for is rationality. how many among us would say it is okay to have 100 rounds of clips in a banana, that is just not rationale, they're talking about people with the opportunity to take away massive, massive amounts of loss. and i think reasonable people will say that is something we can get behind. and thank you, president obama for being clear you are going to take action and you need our help. but it is not just about the guns. i tell you, on my program, we're getting deep with what to do about people and family members, people with mental illness that are out of control. there is woeful resources in our country, people cannot get conservativeship. there is no state hospital or structure. and i would say president obama please, please, there is so much more to be done here than just guns. and this is our opportunity, and connecticut is just a symptom. >> and the president made it clear, he agrees with you. it is not just guns that are an issue, even though he did say you have to deal with military type assault weapons, high-capa

between tragedy and action. the triangle shirt factory and workers laws. obviously what happened in 9/11 and the entire regime that's been put into place. i thought about this when i saw this clip, one of our producers found from robert strange who runs a security firm talking to fox, take a look. >> you know, i have two kids now i suddenly want to see an armed police officer in the school. i never thought of that prior to now. what would that take to have an armed police officer in every school? >> unfortunately, i think we just saw it. i think we just saw it. i think it's going to change the way we look the athings. i think this is going to be for schools what 9/11 is for airports. >> this will be for schools what 9/11 is to airports. i want to get your thoughts on that, how we think about security, particularly in the wake of this after this break. at first, jake's family thought they saved ziggy, but his connection with jake has been a lifesaver. for a love this strong, his family only feeds him iams. compared to other leading brands, it has 50% more animal protein... ...to help k
thing that stood out about his comments, chris, he talked about the need for meaningful action, saying it is necessary regardless of the politics. he didn't go into details today. i expect during the coming days and weeks, we will learn a little bit more about what he meant specifically about meaningful action. the last time he talked about gun control and this type of issue were in the days after that horrible shooting in aur a aurora, colorado. i'm going to read you a little portion of that speech because it fleshes out what was behind his words today. the president saying he believes in the second amendment. but i also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that a.k. 47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals. that they belong on the battlefield of war. i believe the majority of gun owners would believe that we should do everything possible. that a mentally unbalanced individual should not be able to get his hands on a gun so easily. so those are some of the policy issues, i think, that are behind those words that he made today. and, again, we expect t
and for our entire economy. but the hour for immediate action is here. it is now. >> the president correctly says the time for immediate action is now. apparently not his immediate action, though, with the nation facing a crippling fiscal cliff in just three days, the president calls congressional leaders together and says, you fix it. no, he doesn't offer any new plan from the white house, no compromise. instead the president tells the senate to come up with a deal and the same senate that hasn't passed a budget in years. and the marks don't like it at all, 158 points now tanking and falling further in the after market and we'll have to see how asia opens on monday. it could be ugly. the headlines are falling fast and furious. we're all over it "the kudlow report" starts right now. >>> welcome. i'm michelle caruso-cabrera in for larry kudlow. a lot happened in just the last couple of hours. >> michelle, there's considerably more optimism after the white house meeting between the president and the four bipartisan leaders than there was earlier in the day. mitch mcconnell and harry reid say t
be a mechanism that would guarantee further action next year. if at all possible, they would disagree next year and there would be some sort of trigger or punishment for their lack of action. that sounds relatively simple, i think, putting it all together could take at least a couple of weeks after they have a deal. there could be some inevitable blocks either by conservatives in the house or in the senate. blowups either byow wha conservatives in the house or in the senate. the details can get pretty political party quickly. there's so much in flux. it all presupposes that the get an agreement. there was a school of thought that they could not get an agreement until tax rates actually go up next year. >> you can follow himat @apandrewtaylor. >> a discussion on the u.s. economy and you pull in the middle class with participants from think tanks, academia and business at 8:30 a.m. eastern tomorrow on c-span 2. >> the supreme court will look at what was passed in 2008 by a majority of six-three, i believe, and they will say that is president. and coming indiana had voter -- and indiana had voter
with no intervening action or debate. and i would just add -- and i will be brief because i don't want to take from my colleagues' time. again, what this bill does is provide more stem visas than the previous bill. it producers an entrepreneurship visa which the other bill doesn't and it does not take away existing visas which the senator from texas doesn't like but many other people find popular, good and necessary. the unemployment of those on the diversity visas coming in is much lower than that of the national average. and so if we want to pass a pure stem bill without extraneous provisions added by people who are antiimmigration because they don't want to see any net increase in immigration, i urge the support of our bill, and i move the bill. the presiding officer: is there objection? the senator from texas. mr. cornyn: reserving the right to object. the problem with the senator's proposal is that this piece of legislation he has referred to has not passed out of committee in the senate. it has not passed the house. this bill, the stem act, has passed the house. it has a two-year sunset provisio
director of the brady center's legal action project. welcome, both. i'm so glad you could come here to talk about this. dan gross, this goes all the way back with me. i covered the reagan years, known jim and sarah brady, so there's an issue here, and we're not talking about second amendment rights, but we're talking about reasonable background checks. what is the state of play right now? >> the state of play, you know, we're incredibly optimistic, because very clearly after you see the mass tragedies happen, this is a conversation that the american public wants to have. the american public knows that as a nation we are better than this. not only are we better than a nation with mass shootings and movie theaters and schools and places of worship, but we're also better that than a nation that loses 32 people to gun murders every day, and the reality is there are things, as you have pointed out, that we all agree on that have nothing to do with the second amendment that can prevent these tragedies from happening. a big one of those things is doing something about the 40% of all gun sales in t
with president obama's call to action against what he calls the national epidemic of gun violence amid the trauma over the newtown school massacre, he has put vice president biden in charge of the agenda that could be submitted to congress next month. and a growing number of americans want action from the government. a brand new poll shows that 52% of u.s. adult dults favor major restrictions on guns, making all guns illegal versus 47% last august. let's turn to our white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's joining us. the president came out and didn't mince very words. >> reporter: no, wolf. this is the first time that president obama has laid out a time line. he appointed vice president biden to lead this group of cabinet lawmakers to come out with some solutions and he wants those recommends from him no later than january. the president said this time washington won't just talk about tackling gun violence. >> this is not some washington commission. this is not something where folks are going to be studying the issue for six months and publishing a report that gets read and then pushed as

mobile app. >>> the first class action lawsuit has been filed as a result of instagram's proposed terms of service change that would have allowed the social media company to sell users' photos without permission for advertising and the idea created a big backlash that forced the company to apologize and make about an about face. >> if instagram is not going forward with these plans, why the lawsuit? taking us through this is roy choy, managing editor at technobuffalo. that's the question i've had all along. they backtracked big-time when there was this backlash and yet we still have a class action lawsuit being brought. does it have any merit, do you think? >> i think it has absolutely no merit. i think it's a frivolous lawsuit. look for a bunch of attorneys that are looking to get their name out there in privacy law. >> do you think it's going to be dropped then? >> i definitely do think so. i think the only change that is really substantial at this moment is -- you can't take instagram to a court of law outside of a class action lawsuit. they have instituted a -- an arbitration system

in conservative politics. their actions alone marked a alone marked their different backgrounds and experiences. it is easy to forget that buckley was once a fledgling writer and publisher trying to stimulate himself and the world of politics and letters. the son of a oil baron, and thurmond was a priceless compact, father and son both. later, after a seachange inaugurated on the civil rights movement, thurmond would not be the only conservative leader with a segregationist record in need of scrubbing. in the 20 century american right was a smaller, more interconnected world than we often remember. now, i think strom thurmond life is interesting for the life that it shed on southern and -- it properly the light it sheds on southern a national politics in the second half of the 20th century. but strom thurmond's life is also interesting simply as a life. i mean, the man lived to be 100. he was full of twists and turns. it was full of psychological complexity, and unintended consequences, and it was full of secrets, too, right? we know the secret of his having fathered an african-american daughte
on the streets, in the churches, are saying to me, we need to do something. it is a call to action. >> and do you feel that same call to action? because we've had a lot of these. i mean there was a young girl that died in tucson in the gabby giffords shooting, a lot of people that died, but a 9-year-old i think that died in that. we had a baby killed in the aurora theater. and this is sort of horrific beyond imagination because there's so many young people. we've heard this before. and there is -- you know, there are people saying wait a minute, can we not do anything just as a knee-jerk reaction, we need to think this through. >> the tipping point on these issues whether it's taking on assault weapons or providing more comprehensive mental health or addressing the sort of culture of violence that prompts somebody to do something like this, the tipping point should have happened a long time ago. if this is the tipping point, then we're going to go down to washington and prompt a conversation that's long overdue. you know, a young man grabbed us in his church we were in sobbing saying, don't let t
connell is speaking to the president. if the senate is going to be the place where action starts, you need both of them there. and the second reason for optimism is boehner is back at the table because you can't pass something just through the senate. >> this afternoon's meeting feels much to me like optics to make it look like we're doing something but let me just say one more time, this is a total dereliction of duty at every level. i have been very surprised that the president has not laid out a very specific plan to deal with this, but candidly, congress could have done the same, and i think the american people should be disgusted. >> but let's be optimistic for a minute. let's say a deal is done. do you think that republicans can sell this to either their base or to the house at least as a tax cut, not a rise in taxes? >> chuck schumer brought up a good point. a key moment of these entire negotiations came on wednesday night when president obama calls mitch mcconnell, bring the republican leader in the process. what happens now is very important. as sam said, they'll be negotiating today a
a crisis. a trillion dollar deficit and not enough to force action. we still pay very little interest and the interest bill is shrinking. the primary deficit that we run up every year has been shrinking for two years straight and will shrink a lot if we go over the fiscal cliff. i am not in the absence of a crisis. >> looking at what boehner just did, obama will be blame for the highest increase in history. i'm not optimistic that we are going to go over the cliff. it seems that way. baner and the gop are highly unpopular and 11% approval rate. obama is very popular. 57% from cbs and 54% from abc. is boehner correct that the president will get blamed for the tax increase. they trust the way the president is dealing and don't trust the way the gop is dealing. >> that's the first time boehner and drop the mike have been used. >> that's right. >> leave it to him. >> i think the great challenge for obama is he wants consensus and they want to sign on to a tax increase and whatever deal and not run against it. they will sign on to something and run against it anyway. they at of them who vo
, meaningful action. the president and the president chooses his words very carefully. what do you think he means by meaningful action? >> well, this is the first time the -- he said he would do something in the wake of these horrible tragedies. so i think he put down a pledge to only -- only way to take sit he's going the look for some kind of a change in gun law. now we know that he -- i don't want to get lawyeresque on you and say, you know, but when you say meaningful action we can take a common sense plain reading of it that obama who has been very reluctant to do anything on the gun control issue is ready to do something. >> what are you hearing from lawmakers in d.c.? specifically perhaps lawmakers from the right. is there a -- different mood there at this point? >> well, we have heard the comments that we have heard after all of these other mass shoot things year which is we have to be careful about rushing to judgment. we have to be careful about necessarily enacting new gun laws. perhaps this is a broader issue about mental health or issues with the family. i spoke yesterday with
regime is prepared to deploy phem against rebels. the u.s. says it is ready to take action if it does. will this unravel mideast already on the brink? details coming up next. >>> us would you sell away your name for anntire year? one florida man is doing exactly that. he is sparking a bidding war between companies that want it. he will explain.

of this fire. there's the debt ceiling action too. take a listen to this, if you can, perry. >> it is somewhat like taking your child hostage and saying to somebody else i'm going to shoot my child if -- you don't want to shoot your child. there's no republican leaders that wants to default on our debt that i talked to. so i think that all to be a nonpartisan. >> maybe not the most eloquent strategy, but in these times we watch the rhetoric. >> is this setting up another fight? >> i'm sure steny hoyer would want to phrase that differently in the future. there's not enough time yet, so i think we are coming back to the debt ceiling debate again, probably in a month or so. that would be unfortunate in a lot of ways. >> c'mon, perry, you don't think they can solve it? i'm joking. thank you both. >>> general norman schwarzkopf died thursday in tampa from complications from pneumonia. in 1991, known as stormin' norman oversaw "operation desert storm" the first persian gulf war that forced iraq out kuwait. he was 78 years old. how-to knowledge to give us an edge, and more savings down every aisle. i
that you face at paychecks? >> all the attention on the fiscal cliff and no action is really producing, i think, a dampered view from small business, and they're just kind of waiting on the sidelines right now. what you're seeing in our clients, they're not opening up their second location, they're not hiring more employees. it's fairly quiet. >> yeah, there it is. that's fiscal cliff. he had been building a head of steam. and suddenly he's talking about business building tailing off. washington, washington -- but do you ever hear them -- they talk about the job creators. you have to protect the job creators. they spoke to the president, i thought the president was starting to understand this. but this is about etiology. this isn't about the war between the states that are gop, and the states that are democrat. etiology does not get solved in a back room. it doesn't. it gets solved by the actual citizens saying, i can't pay for dinner. i can't pay for dinner. i've got to stay, and i can't go to brinker, i've got to go get mccormack spice and hamburger helper. that's when it changes. >> th
at the scenes, what the offender's actions were there at the school. for example, during the period of time that he was in the classrooms and shooting, what was his behavior like? was he frantic or frenzied, cool and calm, controlled and collected. that will tell us more about this personality. how do we get that kind of information? >> well, you have to go back and tra trace what this individual was doing. when you look at how he was dressed, this has been going on a long time. there has to be a lot of interviewing that is going to take place. what he was doing to figure out what his intension was. but why did he go through with it. they talk about as burger and so forth. what is your take? >> well, that is a greaeat question and i'm glad that you asked that. here is the test, did this visual know the nature and the quality of his behavior and did he know whether or not it was wrong. and my experience with these cases and my knowledge of what has been made public is this is an individual who engaged in long-term planning and who w carried out that plan in a thoughtful way. he knew what he
announced the action he's going to take. we heard from the first time from the powerful national rifle association saying they want to make sure a tragedy like this never happens again. "20/20" anchor chris cuomo is here to start us off on this. chris? >> diane, people are moved. we all want to make sure it never happens again. the question, which actions will follow? and the answers are starting to take shape. with each body buried, calls for change. just today, the white house voicesing support for new gun laws and an assault weapon ban, weapons that fire a success of bullets with each pull of the trigger. cerberus announcing the sale of a stake in the biggest maker of assault rifles. the union representing california teachers is releasing because of the its connection with bushmaster. >> people were passionate about the issue. >> reporter: the strive for culture change. making assault rifles taboo. >> a lot of people are getting behind and understanding that at the end of the day, it's not the dollar that counts. but the sense. the sense of what they are going with their money. the
leader in gun control, called the n.r.a.'s plan a distraction that's only intended to delay action by congress. >> should we have a conversation about school security? yes. should we have a conversation about mental illness and the culture of violence? yes. but we can't ignore the common denominator in all of these deadly massacres: access, easy access to killing machines. >> reporter: the fact is, scott, that one-third of america's public schools already have armed security and it's interesting to note an armed deputy sheriff was assigned to columbine high school near denver in 1999 but failed to stop that attack that killed 13. >> pelley: chip, thank you very much. of course, the best thing is to prevent a mass shooting and the united states secret service has spent years studying assassins and school shooters in order to do just that. brian vossekuil and robert fein wrote two studies for the secret service and they told us in an interview for "60 minutes" that gunmen often leave a lot of clues about their intentions. >> strong key to prevention is to encourage those with informa
